Casting my Vote for Erik "First Month" Bedard....he was dealing tonight against a pretty good hitting DBacks team...i liked the increased tempo Bedard was using...he did not seem behind in the count as much tonight...
HM to JHay for playing some GREAT D at 3b
HM to Cutch for causing havoc in scoring the first Pirate run....
At one point he retired 17 straight...the 18th batter was thrown out at second on a great throw from Marte in Left to end the inning....Bedard was pretty darn good tonight....
"Need to borrow my limo and driver?"
Not quite sure if you meant this for me, but I have two rules in life:
1. I refuse to join any club or organization that would accept someone like me as a member.
2. I would never consider ruining your rep amongst the beautiful people by doing anything other than washing your limo.
The Pirates really needed a good start from him tonight & he delivered.
He was great on a night when he needed to be great. If he even gives up one run, maybe Arizona uses different pitchers in 8th.
I could see him slinging his slow curves up there with his ho hum look on his face.
The most lackadaisical and leisurely Star of the Game ever, starring Erik Bedard, heh.
Just kind of strolls around and gets guys out, then strolls to the plate and slaps the ball into left. Only made one glaring mistake pitch today, and luckily that was caught out in left field in PNC as opposed to the upper deck in Arizona.
Great performance tonight.
I had a bad feeling about tonight. Figured the Dbacks would rough him up. But the opposite happened. Great pitching performance.
